Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Volvo C70 Owner Comments

  • 93,000 miles


I purchased a 2001 Volvo C70 convertible used with ~ 73,000 miles in 2006. It now has 93,000 miles. Last summer I had to replace the radiator because it cracked. On the evening of Tuesday, December 22 while returning home on the beltway, I began to smell something and an up arrow indicating I should shift gear lit on the dashboard panel. I learned two days later, I needed to replace the transmission. Now I understand there is a fuel pump recall. This seems like a lot of major repair work in a fairly young vehicle with so few miles, and regular oil changes at every 3,000 miles and annual checkups.
